Breakfast Roundtable with Trade Authorities
On 21 July the British Chamber of Commerce hosted a members-exclusive Breakfast Roundtable with Panamanian Ministry of Trade and Industries Authorities, which included Alberto Aleman, Director of Panama’s trade promotion agency PROINVEX; Jonathan Diaz, Director of the Multinational Headquarters Regime; and Essie Mastellari, Director of Investments Promotion. The round-table conversation was chaired by Ariel Perez Price, the UK Trade and Investment Director.
The event was very well attended by members eager to learn more about the different branches of Panamanian international trade. We heard from Alberto, Jonathan and Essie about the functions of each of their offices in matters of trade, and what the future plans for their agencies are. Additionally, many of the present members voiced their recommendations and concerns of many issues around trade, such as attracting more investment and industrial concerns.
